Xavier High School ROTC Regimental Drill Team - The X-Squad

 

The X-Squad has a long-standing tradition and stellar history as a key part of the Xavier High School Junior Reserves Officer’s Training Corps (JROTC) Regimental Drill Team. Members of the X-Squad are regularly called upon to conduct presentation of Colors and engage in exhibition precision-drill performances at the school and throughout the City of New York. The team also participates in local, regional and national competitions.

Cadet Captain Ted Badea, co-captain of the Drill Team and X-Squad, is of proud Romanian heritage. Ted’s parents, Ted and Felicia Badea, migrated from the City of Arad to the US in the 1970’s. Ted is currently a rising senior at Xavier High School and has participated on the Drill Team all three years. He currently serves as a Platoon Leader in the Regiment. Ted’s future goal in the JROTC program is to rise to the level of Cadet Colonel - the highest-ranking position in the Regiment.
